Rectangular Pushers

I don’t dislike pump or screwdown chronograph pushers but if I could have a choice, I‘d opt for rectangular ones. Less ‘useful’ than the former two but it does give a chronograph a ‘cleaner’ look imo.

Beautiful watch!

Any argument as to why the rectangular pushes are less useful than the pump style? I thought it was purely design choice haha

Thanks - been really happy with the watch and it deserves more wrist time!
Screwdowns - water resistance. Activation for the pump pushers - the engagement has always ‘felt’ better on pump pushers than rectangular ones for me, personally. Do you have a preference?

agree with you, looks more cleaner

Never experienced the rectangular ones. I agree aesthetically I prefer rectangular however never had to actuate one. It's not a make or break decision for me however haha

100% in agreement with you. My everyday watch for about 20 years was a chronograph with rectangular pushers and it looked far more elegant than the pump or screw down style, IMO.

I think I prefer round, judging by my collection and what I wear. I’m not usually one for chronos or stopwatch complications, but I’m team round when I represent. Let’s be the outlier.

Not just chronographs. The Lobinni 16001 is an annual calendar watch, and it also has rectangular pushers. I found them very pleasant to use. Screwdown pushers have the advantage though that it's impossible to engage them accidentally.

Truth be told I’m not a massive chronograph fan either! I know being a watch enthusiast, I ‘should’ like them, (and they look great through display casebacks etc) but they’ve never been near the top of my list. I’ll hand back Watch Enthusiast Card now….

Never seen the Lobinni one. Pic?

Very good point for the screwdowns!

Gorgeous piece! I'm not too familiar with Studio Underdog, having only come across them on YouTube videos a couple of times hahaha! What movement lies inside this beauty? 💪🏽

Yes - throw it in the junk pile with mine. I have learnt that not having Seiko, not wearing anything under 2 years old, knowing what I like, defending quartz, wearing vintage as dailies, wearing anything sub 36mm, and pointing out similarities between various models makes me some sort of fiend, and therefore I should not be trusted. I mean, they are right…

As an aside, I haven’t seen that brand of watch before so thank you for posting it.

It’s a Seagull ST1901 (manual wind).

I think most of the reviews are for the Watermelon variant

I had linked to my review of the watch, which has a couple of pics.
